Sony PSP 3000 review: Sony PSP 3000


Sony PSP 3000

Light, slim enclosure; screen offers better color reproduction than that of earlier PSP models; improved AV output for video and game playback on TVs; built-in Skype with onboard microphone; retains all of the impressive media and online features of...

Despite improvements, problems and annoyances remain: screen exhibits noticeable jaggies and scanlines during high-motion video and gaming sequences; UMD load times still poky compared with DS games; screen isn't glare-free, and is still a magnet for...

While there's probably not enough to get owners of previous the PSP to upgrade, newcomers will find the PSP-3000 to be a solid portable gaming and multimedia device.

Hand held system for serious gamers


When it comes to hand held video game systems, reviewers say the Sony PSP-3000 is the best bet for serious gamers, because it offers more realistic graphics and a larger game library than the Nintendo DSi (*Est. $150). The Sony PSP-3000 includes a...

Large, 4.3-inch LCD display, built-in Wi-Fi and Skype, good graphics and game selection

Sony PSP-3000 Review


Nearly three years after its original release, the PSP is still going strong. Nearly each month this year the handheld system has been showing remarka...

When it comes to the PSP-3000's screen, we can honestly say that we prefer that of its predecessor in nearly every capacity. We'll gladly take slightly more muted colors in exchange for more naturalistic, balanced representation. Especially when paired...

Sony has pulled out all the stops with the PSP-3000.

In July, Sony revealed the PSP-3000 at the 2008 Leipzig Games Convention in Germany, and the new handheld looks to build on the success of the slimmed-down PSP-2000 that was announced just under a year ago. This annual update has proved to be the...

Sony PSP 3000 – better graphics than competition


More than 5000 units had been sold of Sony PSP 3000 in 2005. To revise its success, Sony had launched the PSP 2000 in 2007 with few tweaks, slim profile, and ability to output to TV directly. Now, the company has come back with Sony PSP 3000 with...

Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) 3000


Is this upgrade to the PSP worth it?

External mic, feels less plasticky, colour space options

Mic isn't fantastic

If you're a heavy PSP user with wads of cash to blow, need the external mic or want to play games on a standard TV, the PSP 3000 is the sleeker, visually crisper twin to last year's model. If you're an original PSP owner and skipped the PSP 2000,...

Sony PSP3000 review


The latest version of Sony's PSP multimedia portable is the most competitive yet, with a brighter screen and built-in microphone

Bright, colourful screen ; superb user interface ; excellent mobile gaming ; increasingly broad range of features

Still limited in content options and capacity next to some alternatives, although they're not games consoles

The PSP is steadily grinding out an increasingly effective niche for itself - the newest version is the best yet

Sony PSP Slim & Lite 3000 review


Last year's PSP remake gets remade again. Only without anything we really wanted or asked for…

Still a great media and gaming machine, but not the comprehensive remake we were after

Sony PSP-3000


With its impressive game library, lower price and expanded feature set, it's certainly a much better deal than the original PSP — and it's even better than the PSP 2000. While its media and online functions won't necessarily replace a dedicated AV...

Light, slim enclosure ; Better colour reproduction ; Built-in Skype ; Deep line-up of great game titles with better graphics than Nintendo DS games

UMD load times slow ; Screen isn't completely glare-free and is still a magnet for fingerprints ; No built-in storage

Someday, no doubt, Sony will debut a full-on PSP2, with a host of next-gen features and a more radical redesign. But for now, we've got an evolutionary upgrade of a portable gaming and media console that already had a lot going for it. Existing PSP...
